When younger, if we saw a large bowl of peeled potatoes soaking in water in the fridge, we knew that Potato Pancakes were on the menu for dinner. I’m 99% sure that squeals accompanied that discovery too. Just typing that makes me smile — this Potato Pancake Recipe has bee an all-time favorite for me (and the whole Kuert family) for years.
Along with this recipe comes the innumerable family meals we spent together laughing and making memories! I hope you can say that you do the same. Those memories are priceless to me!
I’m not sure why, but I haven’t these potato pancakes in years. GULP! Mom came for a visit and I mentioned making them. Well, the recipe not only made an appearance, but it’s been made several times since. My husband LOVES them too! Paired with butter, sour cream and salt — your taste buds are about to do a happy dance.
Of course you could serve a couple of these with eggs for breakfast too! For us, they’ve been a dinner staple for years. We rarely serve them with anything else either, it is pretty good with a side of apple sauce. Usually 3-4 potato pancakes will fill you up…. Boy, I’m officially craving some carbs now (haha).
In all honestly, if you like potatoes, these delicious patties are sure to become a new favorite. They’re not only delicious, but super easy too! Enjoy.
